Daisy Butcher (ed.) – Evil Roots: Killer Tales of the Botanical Gothic

Posted by demonik on October 5, 2020

Daisy Butcher (ed.) – Evil Roots: Killer Tales of the Botanical Gothic (British Library, 2019)

Enrique Bernardou

Cover design by Maurico Villamayor


Daisy Butcher – Introduction

Nathaniel Hawthorne – Rappaccini’s Daughter
Arthur Conan Doyle – The American’s Tale
Lucy H. Hooper – Carnivorine
Charlotte Perkins Gilman – The Giant Wistaria
H.G. Wells – The Flowering of the Strange Orchid
Edmond Nolcini – The Guardian of Mystery Island
M.R. James – The Ash Tree
Ambrose Bierce – A Vine on a House
Howard R. Garis – Professor Jonkin’s Cannibal Plant
William Hope Hodgson – The Voice in the Night
Edith Nesbit – The Pavilion
H.C. McNeile – The Green Death
Abraham Merritt – The Woman of the Wood
Emma Vane – The Moaning Lily

Blurb:
Strangling vines and meat-hungry flora fill this unruly garden of strange stories, selected for their significance as the seeds of the villainous (or perhaps just misunderstood) “killer plant” in fiction, film, and video games.
Step within to marvel at Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s giant wistaria and H. G. Wells’ hungry orchid; hear the calls of the ethereal women of the wood, and the frightful drone of the moaning lily; and do tread carefully around E. Nesbit’s wandering creepers…
Every strain of vegetable threat (and one deadly fungus) can be found within this new collection, representing the very best tales from the undergrowth of Gothic fiction.

Mary Whitehouse – “Who Does She Think She Is?”

Posted by demonik on July 22, 2017

Mary Whitehouse – “Who Does She Think She Is?”   (NEL, Jan. 1972)

 

Blurb:
No critic of television has ever been more widely read, criticised and talked about than Mary Whitehouse.

In this book she recounts the experiences which have come to someone who is prepared to set no limit upon their commitment to society.

Anyone who is concerned about the importance of individual freedom and who cares about problems of social and sexual morality must read this revealing book.

Malcolm Muggeridge says of Mrs. Whitehouse . . . “She is one of the remarkable women of our time, and this account of herself provides an opportunity to know and understand her better.”

‘Sapper’ – Bulldog Drummond

Posted by demonik on April 11, 2009

‘Sapper’ (Herman Cyril McNeille) – Bulldog Drummond: The Carl Peterson Quartet (Wordsworth Editions, 2007)

[image]

Nesta Jennings Campbell, Shades Of Night

Blurb:

‘Demobilised officer, finding peace incredibly tedious would welcome diversion. Legitimate if possible; but crime, of a comparatively humorous description, no objection. Excitement essential.’

Bulldog Drummond was the original daredevil adventurer who, with his various friends, made it their mission to fight all enemies of Britain in the uncertain years following the First World War. Fearless, resourceful and debonair, Drummond could easily have been the father of James Bond. In the first four novels of the series, Bulldog Drummond, The Black Gang, The Third Round, The Final Count, all of which are contained within this volume, Hugh Drummond finds himself pitting his wits again Carl Peterson, a criminal genius with an insatiable passion for power and world domination. He has the great facility of disguise and his chameleon appearances are one of the joys of these thrilling tales. Peterson’s constant companion is the sinister but beautiful Irma.

The Drummond books are exciting page-turning adventures for grown up boys and girls.
